Some Laneys Died by Brooke Skipstone

Thanks to the author and publisher for the e-ARC in return for my honest review.

Laney caught her dad cheating and he begged her not to tell. Upset and angry, she told her mum and since that day Laney is filled with regret about her decision. She writes version after version of how differently things may have turned out according to the choices she could have made.

At first her writing seems to be a fictional outpouring of her grief as she tries to deal with what happened but when she hears the news that two girls were murdered at the same time and place as where the events of her past happened, she starts to believe it is all linked.

Quantum physics and parallel universes admittedly make my head hurt but the explanations provided by Laney’s mother, an expert in the field, helped me understand it enough to grasp the book’s concept. Following Laney through different versions of herself and her worlds depending on the butterfly effect of choices she makes was a deliciously dizzying sensation. I’m really looking forward to the next in the series!

Some Laneys Died is available to purchase on 10th August. Try this if you enjoy a fast paced book that makes you twist and turn the possibilities over in your mind. Avoid this if you prefer twists and turns to be served up in a more traditional way.
